BURTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- A shot was fired and a woman was struck in the head during an early-morning robbery Monday, according to investigators in Beaufort County.

A 23-year-old woman told investigators with the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office that she and two men were at the Laurel Village Mobile Home park some time after midnight when they were approached by a man with a gun.

The man demanded money, according to a news release from the sheriff's office. When the woman told the alleged suspect she did not have any money, investigators said, she was struck in the head.

The suspect fired a shot into the ground before striking the woman, deputies said.

The suspect fled on foot, the news release said.
